picked them up from the shop that built them literally an hour or so before the pic was taken and wanted to see how well they were built, but didn't have any other bike to try them on at the time lol.

also didnt have the correct tool to take the disc off at the time :oops:

i do now however have a specialized shark fin so this will be going back to discs :D

i had the same issue with mine when the original pics of mine was taken.
ended up just filing the bolt flat. (still has enough of the hex left to aid in bolt removal though)

yeah 98 model but i used 2001 seat stay which had bearings installed and betd link
so used top hats from my 2001 s-works and it fits perfect

edit his is a 99 as his decals are stickers and not painted on like mines

the square style is early big hit max backbone


just been checking on bikepedia '99 was a very odd year for the GC FSR.

the Elite & Pro both had the square tubing.
however the Standard & Comp & Expert all had the older rounded tubing.

very odd as the lineage of the '99 setup goes.

FSR (round)
FSR Comp (round)
FSR Elite (square)
FSR Expert (round)
FSR Pro (square)

at least this is what i can deduce from the rather poor pics on bikepedia.


alos appologies for hijacking your build thread :oops: i just really like my FSR :D
